Exploring Shakespeare in Primary Schools INSET
How do you teach Shakespeare to primary school children? Our approach is all about getting the children excited about the stories, and bringing that narrative to life - the plays were written to be performed after all!
The ‘Exploring Shakespeare in Primary Schools’ INSET will equip teachers with the confidence, skills and drama techniques to investigate Shakespeare plays with children from Reception through to Year Six. This can be a full day or two hour twilight INSET course.
Practical examples of how to approach the text and story
Drama games and methods to engage children and get them involved
Techniques to aid storytelling in performance
Exercises to create characters
Methods to aid teachers to include the whole class, playing a main part between many children
The course can be based on a text of your choice (we suggest A Midsummer Night's Dream as a good starting point) please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Location: INSET courses can be run in schools all around the country.
Duration: Full day or 2 hour twilight course
